About The Event
Join Penelope Janu for champagne and nibbles to celebrate the release of her third novel, On the Same Page. Join Penelope for a light-hearted conversation about writing, literature, and the importance of telling stories with uplifting endings.
On the Same Page is set in Sydney’s inner west. Penelope, who has a background in law, started writing the novel when she was a creative writing student at UTS. Her first two novels are In at the Deep End and On the Right Track.
About the Book
Endearingly quirky and utterly charming. Funny and sweet and wonderful.
Sometimes a girl just has to do what’s in her heart …
By day Miles Franklin, named after the famous author, is a successful lawyer. But by night she writes historical romances under the pen name Emma Browning. When Miles’s assistant covertly enters her boss’s novel in one of Australia’s biggest literary awards—and it wins—Miles’s carefully ordered life is torn apart.
Lars Kristensen smells a rat. As the CEO of Iconic International, the company publishing Miles’s prize-winning novel, he’s determined to meet the author and uncover her true identity.
But Miles is equally determined to protect her privacy—and to keep writing—even if it means mastering pole dancing, and choreographing a love scene in the back of a horse-drawn carriage. Well, she is a romance writer, after all.
Miles has the grit to keep her secret, but Lars has the smouldering looks and arrogance of any romantic hero she has ever imagined. Hmm. Sometimes a girl just has to turn the page...
